Cazbar’s Chef Haluk distills the culinary knowledge of Turkey’s Bolu region when crafting three-course meals from his eclectic prix fixe menu. Dining parties begin their Middle Eastern feast with soups or mezes such as the kabak corbasi, rife with pumpkin and yogurt, followed by the trio of meze with options including hummus, baba gannouj, and emze. In the main course, lamb, chicken, and beef kebaps uppercut the grilled salmon in its gills on their way toward the dinner-plate championship. Cazbar’s ovens also churn out heaping bowls of tas kebapi, a hearty stew of cubed lamb and beef with potatoes and peas. To end the meal, quartets chat over bowls of house-made caramel ice cream, and duos arm-wrestle for a double portion of creamy rice pudding spiced with vanilla and cinnamon.
With belly-dancing shows throughout the restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights, Cazbar has the power to impress a date, a mother, or a cardboard cutout of yourself. Although today’s deal does not include drinks, alcoholic elixirs such as the turkish coffee-tini ($9) or a glass of the house red wine ($7.50) can be ordered with meals.
Cazbar’s chef distills the culinary traditions of Turkey's Bolu region into the kebabs, grilled meats, and salads that fill his eclectic menu. House specialties such as the char-grilled lamb shish kebab and baked okra entertain taste buds with a symphony of flavors and a break dance of textures. Other dishes bring veggies into a starring role, such as the stuffed eggplant, which the Baltimore Sun called "a lesson in delicate flavor." The complexity and care common to the kitchen's savory dishes carries over into the desserts; 50 layers of phyllo dough enclose blankets of toasted pistachios and lemon syrup in each serving of baklava.
